of days ago, president obama said egypt was not exactly the united states' ally, but it wasn't its enemy either. did those words have anything to do with this? >> reporter: i think there is a certain amount of alarm among the leadership of the muslim brotherhood. those i've spoken with did seem to get the message, that the united states was unhappy with the response or the reaction of mohammed morsi, the egyptian president, to the breaching of the american embassy. they felt that maybe it's time to start sending out a more reassuring messages to the united states. but what's significant is that on the one hand the message is come i coming out in english to a nonarabic audience, seemed to be pointing in the direction of reconciliation. i was at a demonstration this morning at a mosque not in the tahrir square area where it was organized by the muslim brotherhood. and the chants were not reassuring. one of the chants was "obama there are a million osamas." referring, of course, to osama bin laden, be chanting that united states is the enemy of god. it appears that the muslim brotherhood is
the united states government. is -- or the united states, because protesters are blaming the u.s. for allowing this video to come out and they are saying the u.s. is accountable and responsible for the fact that they allowed a video like this to go out there and to be spread out there. so that's why these protesters are -- are definitely angry and directing their anger toward the united states. >> mona, being in cairo, why do you think that's happening now? who benefits? >> reporter: that's a great question. we're in a stage where the revolution that began last year for freedoms of all kinds is still very much not completed and a big concern for many in egypt today is that these terrible events will be used by the government to justify a return to emergency law. we still don't have a constitution in egypt, we don't have a parliament. our president and prime minister missing all day. they have made no official statements. you basically have a fringe element that claims to represent us, and it doesn't, on a day and a time when egyptians are still very much trying to decide which
've been warning the united states about this growing extremist threat and that they have been growing ever more concerned about how little control they actually themselves have over the situation. >> arwa, please be careful over there in benghazi. we'll stay in close touch. arwa damon, one of our courageous journalists. the egyptian capital is tense, the u.s. embassy is tense. ben wedeman join us now. what is going on right now? >> at the moment it's gone relatively quiet. in the streets below me, just a few protesters milling around. we haven't heard the bang of tear gas being fired by the security forces. this day could have been much worse in egypt. the muslim brotherhood had called for nationwide protests against this offensive youtube video that sparked this crisis, but at the last moment they cancelled those protests. so really we've seen a small protest outside the u.s. consulate in alexandria. here in cairo the numbers are down. it's important to keep in mind there's just a few hundred protesters outside the u.s. embassy clashing with the egyptian security forces, this in a city of
notwithstanding, there was not a clear cut warning of a strike in the united states about to happen. >> well, august 6 is most certainly an historical document that says here's how you might think about al qaeda. a warning is when you have something that suggests that an attack is impending. and we did not have, on the united states, threat information that was in any way specific enough to suggest that something was coming in the united states. >> former secretary of state and national security adviser condoleezza rice there. kirk eikenwald concedes her argument is plausible, but says he's seen portions of many security briefs and come to an inescapable conclusion that administration's reaction that mr. bush was told -- those were his words. we have not seen what he says he's seen. he joins us shortly to talk about it. we do know from the report of the 9/11 commission that there were 40 other mentions of osama bin laden and al qaeda in presidential daily briefs prior to 9/11. but he goes further than that and reports direct warnings about the al qaeda attacking the u.s. began in the spring
a red line before them, and that's something i think we should discuss in the united states. >> let me read you something i know you're probably quite familiar with. for our viewers, something the president has said repeatedly. this he said at the beginning of the year. as president of the united states i don't bluff. i think both the iranian and the israeli governments recognize that when the united states says it is unacceptable for iran to have a nuclear weapon, we mean what we say. do you disagree with that? >> i think that when he says that implicitly is that he will stop them before they have a nuclear weapon, which means they'll draw red lines. i think it's important to communicate it. i wouldn't bet -- i wouldn't bet the security of the world and my own country's future from a country that threatens our annihilation and murders civilians en masse in syria and brutalizes its own people. i wouldn't bet the future on intelligence for simple reasons. american intelligence and israeli intelligence that cooperate together. that wonderful success about saving lives and alerting the pe
the mourners as the bodies of the u.s. ambassador and others killed in libya return to the united states. and mitt romney ramps up his criticism of the president again as the latest polls show him falling behind in several crucial states. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> but we begin with these live pictures. look at this. this is tahrir square in cairo. these are live pictures coming in not far from the united states embassy. once again, the protests escalating even as we speak. earlier in the day it had been relatively -- keyword, relatively, quiet. now seems to be escalating for some reason. our own ben wedeman is on the ground for us. we're going to be going to him shortly. at the same time as these scenes are unfolding, there also have been frightening scenes of violence and hatred directed at the united states and others around the region. it's spreading. and u.s. officials are very worried. sources tell me they're especially concerned about today's penetration of the united states embassy in tunisia and the reports that the american school was actually burned.
amox those ready to pull the plug? >> you always have to ask yourself, is the united states and the national security better if we're gone completely or have a sphere of influence there? i do believe it ought to be leverage as we move forward and we have to get some commitments by this government that they're going to do more in sinai, less to provoke israel and make sure our u.s. embassies are protected fully by the egyptian government. it's unconscionable this could happen on their watch. so it needs to be a point of discussion. we need to be careful about starting to pull out of places that we don't understand the changes that are happening and we don't understand the intelligence and military roles yet and what this muslim brotherhood is trying to do. we should walk into that decision, not run into it. >> speaking of israel, what do you make of this decision the white house telling the israeli government, prime minister netanyahu coming to the united states that the president won't be able to meet with him because of scheduling conflicts. this comes at a time of tension
of pressure when it comes to this. not only from the united states, but also from its own people. now, whether these people that are detained are really involved in the attack or have links to this extremist group is something that we'll have to see and see what kind of reaction we see from the extremists too. >> do we have any idea if they're related or affirmative actionated with al qaeda? there's a lot of talk about that yesterday, the possibility that that was the organization. >> not much has been revealed by the government by this group, but what we do know, suzanne, is this is not an isolated incident. over the past few months we have seen an uptick in similar attacks targeting western interests. the u.s. consulate itself was targeted in an attack back in june when a bomb detonated outside the embassy. those attacks taken place in benghazi was targeted by a extremist group, it was called the brigades. this is a true al qaeda group. we also do know that there are groups with links direct links to al qaeda that operate in the eastern part of the country. >> what is the security situation
clinton, but most popular women in the world and president obama, president of the united states, speaking directly to them with their faces, their words coming out and saying this was not u.s. government policy. that's the truth. >> i think it's not an apology. let's talk about how the people in the united states may feel. you know the people there well, but many people in the u.s. don't understand why a cheap internet movie that was made here in the u.s., not in pakistan, not -- how would you explain this cultural divide? >> we take very personally the importance of our protections for free speech, but in pakistan and elsewhere in the world it's beyond the law. it's beyond a constitutional. they are -- i have always found -- i have served for many muslim countries, muslim majority countries, and i have found the people to be very gracious, very welcoming, very accepting of my differences as a foreigner, and they expect and would like to be shown greater respect, and they find that this kind of video is highly disrespectful of them and it's offensive. now, that does not, as it did in liby
and conciliatory as far as the united states goes. in arabic, a much harsher tone and in some respects, not all together condemning the current protests outside the u.s. embassy here. >> we'll continue the conversation. we'll come back to you. if you need for any security reason to step inside away -- you are outside right now, we will certainly understand that. fran, we've identified or know the identity of the fourth victim, tyrone woods, a former navy s.e.a.l. i know you don't know him personally, we've all spent time in hotspots overseas. we know men like him that play critical roles in these dangerous countries without any recognition. >> that's right, anderson. when you look at glen dougherty and tyrone woods, function they perform really allows the united states to be in dangerous places where we need to be in order to protect long term the american people and american interests. our diplomats wouldn't be in those parts of the world without woods and dougherty. woods' sister made a statement, and said she regards hill as an american hero. i think if more people understood the mission and
they hear that the president of the united states is no longer necessarily categorically calling egypt an ally? >> reporter: well, you know, quite honestly there's been a lot of confusion about what the u.s. role is right now and how the u.s. feels about egypt. before our revolution began, there was and continued to be a lot of anti-u.s. sentiment because of this support by various u.s. administrations for dictators in this region. but hearing the statement today, i think people are thinking, all right, well, whose side are you on because we're trying to get this revolution working and it has definitely confused a lot of people. >> all right, thank you so much for your time. i want to go directly to golden, colorado, where the president is speaking about the four who were killed in libya. >> serve in difficult and dangerous places all around the world, to advance the interests and the values that we hold dear as americans. and a lot of times their work goes unheralded, it doesn't get a lot of attention. but it is vitally important. we enjoy our security and our liberty because of the s
and a stern warning. the israeli prime min sister warning the united states to establish a clear line that iran cannot cross with the nuclear program. this morning we ask what is that line and what happens if it's crossed? >>> front page scandal. the royal family trying to stop topless pictures of kate from spreading. an italian magazine owned by the former prime minister silvio berlusconi is publishing a 38-page special edition. it's hitting newsstands now. >> a replacement ref replaced before the kickoff. side judge brian stropolo booted for openly being a saints fan. he posted pictures of himself in saints gearal gating. monday morning quarterback this one. one. "newsroom" begins right now. -- captions by vitac -- >>> good morning. thank you so much for being with us. i'm carol costello. we begin this hour with muslim outrage and new flare-ups of anti-american violence. one flash point, kabul, afghanistan. crowds of protesters turn on police when they try to block their march toward the u.s. embassy. at least 15 officers are hurt and their vehicles set on fire. in ind
between the united states and israel. >> reporter: the white house would not say if the two leaders talked about the so-called red line, which of course is a key issue. and no specifics on how they will stop iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. but they did agree to "continue their regular consultations on this issue." wolf. >> dan lothian reporting from the white house. thank you. mitt romney also spoke by phone today with the prime minister. the call came while romney was at the philadelphia airport after making several campaign stops in pennsylvania. that's a state most political experts don't think he'll win. but as cnn's national political correspondent jim acosta's reporting, romney seems to have some other ideas. jim's joining us right now. what's he saying? what's going on in pennsylvania, jim? >> reporter: wolf, you're right. mitt romney did predict he's going to win the state of pennsylvania come november. but even though his campaign has mainly been a focus on fixing the nation's economy, mitt romney in recent days has been stepping up his attacks on the president on the issue
. there is a dichotomy of messages. in english, they seem to be farrell soft and conciliatory as far as the united states. in arabic, a much harsher tone and in some respects, not all together condemning the current protests outside the u.s. embassy here. >> ben, we are going to continue the conversation. we are going to come back to you. if you need for any security reason to step inside, we will certainly understand that. fran, we now know the identity of the fourth victim, tyrone woods, a former navy s.e.a.l. i know you didn't know him personally. we have all spent a lot of time in hotspots jeeoverseas. >> that's right, anderson. when you look at glen doherty and tyrone woods, the function they perform really allows the united states to be in dangerous places where we need to be in order to protect long-term the american people and american interests. our diplomates wouldn't be there in those parts of the world without those kind of men. his sister said she regards him as an american hero. if more people understood the mission and what they are doing in these dangerous places as well as how woods and
of the united states. president barack obama is campaigning there today as part of his road to charlotte. athena jones is traveling with the president. will the focus be much different from the looking forward kind of concept that he delivered in iowa on saturday? >> reporter: we expect the focus to be much the same responding to some extent to what we heard from the republicans at their convention last week. but as you mentioned, this is day two of the road to charlotte tour that the campaign is calling it. you can see the crowd behind me. they've lined up since early this morning, they are still making their way in. the president is expected to take the stage in about 30 minutes. this is an important battleground states. it only has nine electoral votes. but when you try to get to the magic number of 270, every little bit counts. it is going to be important to their calculus here. i should mention that the president has been to colorado 11 times since taking office. this is his eighth trip this year alone. so it shows you just how important colorado is to their campaign, fredricka. >> so the p
. >>> we would like to welcome our viewers in the united states and around the world to this, the democratic national convention, as charlotte, north carolina. i'm on the convention floor, i'm wolf blitzer. the first lady of the united states, michelle obama, has tonight's most critical job, reminding voters why they liked her husband enough to put him in the white house, and to make the case for giving him another four years. joining us now in our coverage all of this week, anderson cooper, high above the floor. >> our new poll shows why that case is more urgent than ever for the democrat. new numbers on mitt romney's convention bounds. john, what are the numbers? >> anderson, as the democrats open their convention tonight, let's look at that very question. we know governor romney got a one-point bounce out of his convention, not so great, about half what the president got four years ago. not a big bounce. where does that leave us? the democrats' opening night two months from a critical election day. doesn't get any closer than that. 48-48. >> the convention will pay tribute
the united states ambassador to libya and three other americans. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> with only 47 days to go until the election, the romney campaign's about to roll out another new strategy. voters will be seeing a lot more of mitt romney. in fact, we're only minutes away from his speech at a rally in florida. our national political correspondent jim acosta is joining us now live from sarasota to set the scene. jim, what's going on? >> reporter: wolf, we expect mitt romney to be out here in sarasota, florida, in just a few minutes from now. this is where his advisors say after a relatively light schedule over the last couple weeks, mitt romney and his campaign will be picking up the pace. and after seeming to defend those comments on that hidden camera video on government dependency, romney appears to be shifting again on that message as well looking for something that will stick. after being caught on tape writing off 47% of voters as obama supporters who are dependent on government, mitt romney was checking his math at a candidate's forum with the spanish
. >> does it surprise you that the united states doesn't take any other actions other than what they call nonlethal support? does it surprise you they don't want to arm the rebels, for instance or talk about a no-fly zone or buffer zone or safe zones? >> translator: right now there are certain things being expected from the united states. the united states had not yet catered to those expectations. maybe it's because of the elections, maybe it's because of the pre-election situation in the states. nobody has spoken to us about their reasons and they are not obliged to state anything. we're very thankful and pleased they have stated they are against this regime. >> it's good to see you. hearing what he said, can you give me a broader context of what he was explaining? >> reporter: i think he's very frustrated. he's a good friend of united states and a good friend to the obama administration. he didn't want to come out and directly sledge hammer the obama administration but he did say he is frustrated. perhaps the elections are playing part in the fact that the united states is not leading
his speech. netanyahu has been critical of the united states, saying there is no more time for diplomacy on iran's nuclear program. plus, mira sore vino stops about her crusade to stop human trafficking and tomorrow you will meet a teacher who struggled a teacher that strug d for years and then found a way to profit off of what she was doing in the classroom and it turned her in to a millionaire. it's an amazing story. it is "out front" tomorrow. here's piers morgan tonight. >>> tonight, nuclear threat in the east, mahmoud ahmadinejad says he is the victim. >> no one feels secure or safe, even those who have stockpiled thousands of atomic bombs and other arms in their arsenals. >> we hear what will it take to keep iran from getting the bomb. >> i don't see victims. i see hard-working ohioans. >> we can't afford four more years like the last four years. we have to get the economy going again. >> campaigns go head to head. what the latest means. nate silver will be asked if romney can win and deepak chopra, wesley clark and ameerah al-taweel. things get lively at the clinton
barack obama president of the united states of america. >> this is america's choice. >>> we'd like to welcome our viewers in the united states and around the world to this, the democratic national convention in charlotte, north carolina. everyone here is waiting to hear what bill clinton will say about president obama tonight as well as his own time in the white house. but another speech tonight could make or break the democrats' hope for keeping control of the united states senate. elizabeth warren is challenging republican senator scott brown in massachusetts. coming up in this hour, we'll hear praise of bill clinton from someone you might not expect. >> coming from the republicans, vice presidential candidate paul ryan sat down with cnn's piers morgan to compare the clinton and obama presidencies. the two presidents have not always been close, obviously. our chief national correspondent john king covered the clinton white house for us. >> these two presidents, the former president and president obama are more than at peace now. you may say both men share a little bit of numbers
on american aircraft over the united states. i don't think that's going -- nothing's going to stop that happening. >> reporter: the u.s. government is not even considering allowing passengers to use cell phones on planes. but officials are looking into whether passengers can use devices like these to read or listen to music during takeoff and landing. american airlines pilots just started using ipads in the cockpit throughout the flight to access maps and other information. flight attendants will also get tablets to use inside the cabin. and consumer advocates say allowing passengers to do the same during takeoff and landing would only be fair. >> it kind of bothers consumers and passengers not so much the fact that they can't make cell phone calls, just the fact they can't use any electronic devices. >> reporter: and he worries one day on domestic u.s. flights dealing with a loud neighbor talking on a mobile phone may be the next in-flight inconvenience. sandra endo, cnn, washington. >> polls show mitt romney's support is lagging in key states. we'll talk with newt gingrich about

states for the last four years and the best training to be the president of the united states is to be successfully the president of the united states, which he has been. >> then we should always do away with the second term and say, let's go on for eight years. do you agree that fundamentally -- >> no. we wouldn't have these unemployment numbers and now 360,000 people have given up and if they stayed in the workforce we would have 8.4 unemployment and 47 million people on food stamps and heading for the largest rate of poverty in the last 50 years. household income is down $4,000 and how can anyone say that we are better off, and by the way, a number not talked about enough is the deficit is 7.6%. that is equal to greece. we have a deficit the same as greece. >> so taking that deficit number, and let me put some other figures up for the audience. in the economy right now, and gas prices are high. we are $16 trillion in debt, and there is, there are 43 months of unemployment over 8%. how do you sell that? >> so, look, i think that the first thing that you do is to remind peopl
